Tuesday 24 April 2018 – Handover

Handover Inspection - 23 April We had our Handover Inspection with our SS yesterday.  We went through the PCI Report from Darbecca and also Bentley's list and checked everything off.  A few things were outstanding; the mullion on the stacker screen door, and the hole in the flyscreen on the stacker.  These are ordered through…

Wednesday 18 April 2018 – Handover booked

I'm trying not to get too excited, maybe because that means I'll have to start packing and organising the move, or maybe because inspections have been booked before, only to be cancelled, but we have booked handover. Handover inspection booked for Monday 23 April and our Handover Meeting will be at Bentley's office on Tuesday…

Friday 13 April 2018 – 11 Months

We passed the 11 month mark this week.  It's pathetic.  What's even more pathetic is the complete lack of communication we've had from the builder.  At PCI, we told the CM and the SS, that we would really appreciate good communication so that we know what is going on in the lead up to handover. …

Wednesday 28 March 2018 – PCI Day!

Today was our long awaited PCI day.  It started with Mr W meeting with the Construction Manager and the Site Supervisor at 8:30.  I was late - had to do Kinder drop off.  We were there with Bentley until about 11am.  Darbecca arrived at 10:30 to do their Inspection and he left at about 12.…

Sunday 18 March 2018 – PCI Cancelled

So PCI has been cancelled. Mr W and I went to the house on Friday to check the readiness and it was a big fat fail. We couldn't get in, but could see that the pantry shelves still weren't in (it's been 6 weeks) and there are still scratches on the stacker, which we told…

Tuesday 13 March 2018 – PCI Booked

We received an email from our SS this afternoon advising that he was ready to book PCI for Monday 19 March at 10am.  We haven't received the Notice of Completion, or Final Claim, or Occupancy Permit as per the Contract, but in the interest of moving forward, we have booked an inspection with Darbecca.  The…

Wednesday 7 March 2018 – $60 a day

I don't even know what's going on right now.  A dude came to install the pantry shelving, but he forgot the bottom shelf.  You'd think he'd know how to read the plans.  Our 4 year old could see that there are 4 shelves there.   Mr W tried calling the SS on Monday, and left…

Friday 16 February 2018 – VENT!

  Fuck I'm pissed off!  Bentley are doing my head in!  We have been trying to arrange a walk through with our SS for 3 days.  Under the contract we are entitled to walk throughs and they cannot deny us one.  We've had 1 walk through for the whole build, so it's not as though…

Wednesday 14 February 2018 – Some dates!

After last week's update from our CSA, and being told that she was still waiting on a completion date from our SS, a line we have been told for ages, I got a bit cranky and I shot off an email to her on Monday morning that essentially said that we've sat around waiting for…
